    Q:Where can I get parts? I have multiple components of this tool that is failing and need to be replaced. Bought the saw this year and it's so disappointing :-(.

    Answer This Question

    A:  Good luck with that, I believe you have to mail the entire tool back to Richard, you are correct. It is a very disappointing tool bordering on garbage.

    by|Nov 11, 2022

      A:  I haven't had opportunity to use it yet but Ridgid's warranty is very good on paper. If you haven't registered it yet you may still be able to on ridgidpower dot com. You will probably need proof of purchase, but you may be able to get that from Home Depot if you didn't hold onto the receipt.

        Answer This Question

        A:  I would go to https://www.ridgid.com/us/en/power-tools first. They have a three year warranty, or a lifetime warranty if you register with them. I think you should be in the window for registration.

            Waste of money
            Bought one last year it broke at the head. Got a second one that just broke today at the speed switch. This is just diy projects at home, not anything harder than base board or abs. HD won't take it back based on time and I'm not even going to bother with the LLW and send it in.

              Tool #2 broken
              So overall the actually functionality of the tool is great. Doesn’t excessively vibrate. Can turn down the oscillations to start a cut. Simple blade attachment method. Feels solid and works really well. However, My first one went down in under a month with the toggle switch first becoming incredibly hard to press and then failing to turn on the tool. No big deal with the LSA just take it back and get a new one. Now time #2 the speed adjustment knob has fallen off.

                  OK, I really didn’t k ow how badly I have needed this tool throughout my adult life. I’ve always been handy and have done everything from HVAC, plumbing, carpentry and drywall work. This has been the tool I’ve missed having! Great for making accurate cuts in tight places where usually only a hand-tool and lots of strained labor would work. Reciprocating saws have their place but this tool is better and neater for many applications a reciprocation saw is used for. Love it.

                  This is a really solidly built tool, and does good work. It has a fairly wide range of oscillating speeds that you can adjust with a knob in the handle. Changing blades/attachments is quite easy--a flip of the lever on the handle and a flip of the knob on the business end is all that's needed. With the battery (not included) it does not weigh too much. I've used it to cut and sand some wood so far, and it is good at those jobs, getting into places you can't get conventional saws. The only negative for me is that the blades it comes with are pretty low-quality. But those are more of a bonus, and you can easily swap them out for higher quality attachments from a company like Freud.

                  The Ridgid 18 Volt Oscillating Multi-Tool is a multifaceted multi-tool that can handle all types of projects. On its belly is an adjustable speed dial that gives me the ability to make cuts into lots of different types of materials such as plastic, metal, drywall, composite, plywood, metal and wood. [see photo #1] Also it can quickly change to a triangle sander head that has the ability to sand the finest details. Its built-in LED bulb lights my work area with bright light. The on/off button feature gives me a must have advantage of avoiding getting "Triger Finger" while operating this tool for long periods of time. [see photo #2] This multi-tool features a convenient tool free accessory change flip up lever makes switching accessories between applications easy. The Multi-Tool is compatible with most multi-tool accessories from other brands. Best of all, it's a part of the Ridgid's system of tools that all work on the same battery platform. Backed by a 3 year limited warranty and a free RIDGID Lifetime Service Agreement that is only available for eligible RIDGID tools purchased at THE HOME DEPOT. [ see photo #3] This Multi-Tool includes a wood cutting blade, a segment saw blade, a sanding pad, sample sandpaper and an operator's manual. Battery and charger are sold separately. When compared to the competition’s chartreuse-green tool the Ridgid Multi-Tool winds with more Features that give me the Advantages that are a real Benefit over the computation. I recommend this Ridgid Multi-Tool.

                  The Ridgid brushless multitool (oscillating saw) is a powerful and versatile tool to use around the house to do DIY jobs. If you are looking to get your first oscillating saw, this one is a great start. It is strong, sturdy, and has lifetime warranty when you register it on the Ridgid website. There are many things you can do with this tool if you are doing some DIY jobs or are doing any woodworking. Using the right blade for the job, you can remove tile grout, sand small areas with sandpaper pad or remove paint, cut insulation materials, pipes, wood, metal sheet, nails, plasterboard or drywall, plunge cut on wood boards, plywood, door trims for flooring, circular cuts on drywall with a round blade, cut carpet, or scrape various materials with the scraping blade. I had the previous version, jobmax oscillating saw for a long time, and this new max output upgrade addressed many points that I had noticed on the jobmax. First, the handle to take off and insert the blades on the jobmax was difficult to use, and the new release system on top is much better on this one. It can accept universal blades so you can use your existing blades. The on/off button on the top of the body is convenient to start the tool and the speed dial for me was better than a variable speed trigger that you would constantly need to hold. I tested with different oscillating speeds and even the slow setting is strong. It works fine with a 1.5ah or 2.0ah battery and doesn’t need a huge amp battery to use its whole capabilities. I like the small footprint and feel in hand, much smaller and lighter than the jobmax and still as strong. It has a nice rubber overmold and texture on the handle. You can also get it into tighter places easily with the small footprint and by rotating the blade. You can use it for small wood cutting jobs that are often in small enclosed spaces. You can also use it to cut drywall and it gives you a fast and accurate cut. It comes with a wood blade, sanding pad and a sample paper, and a half round blade for wood/drywall. It doesn’t come with a belt hook, but works with other Ridgid belt hooks. I keep it hanging on a pegboard with the belt hook. It is not too loud (louder than a regular drill on high speed setting), but you should still wear eye and ear protection. There is also not a lot of vibration even at the high speed settings and feels okay while using. The location of the LED light is well designed and illuminates the job location quite well. Overall, this is a great oscillating saw for various jobs that may come up around the house.

                  RIDGID 18V Brushless Cordless Oscillating Multi-Tool (Tool Only) – Oscillating saws are great tools and extremely handy; this is why I own a few of them. I use them regularly and compared the RIDGID to my Milwaukee and Dewalt cordless oscillating saws. RIDGID was the lightest and longest of the three: 2 lbs. ½ oz and 12-½ inches, Dewalt 2 lbs. 4 oz and 11-¼ inches, Milwaukee, the heaviest, 2 lbs. 12-½ oz and 11-¾ inches. RIDGID’s blade clamp is unusual. It’s a bar that toggles to hold the blade after the clamp lever is loosened and then tightened. It works okay, but different. I tried several different brand blades for compatibility; all fit. The motor has enough power to cut usual materials, I used it to cut holes in solid maple, oak plywood and OSB. In all cases the tool did fine and the cuts were quick. The tool is comfortable to hold and use. RIDGID tools and batteries all include the Ridgid Lifetime Service Agreement.

                  I love this tool and it will replace my older corded other brand oscillating Multi tool that I had for years of hard use. This would also make a great gift for the DIYer in your life. Here is what I like about this tool: 1) Cordless, no more having to push the cord around or find my extension cord to carry with me to use. 2) This is brushless motor, so like all brushless tools, it has more power and last longer use with your battery. 3) It takes any 18v Ridgid battery. I tried my older Ridgid battery from my Drill Driver set and it works perfectly on this tool. So it will take any Ridgid 18V battery. That is great. 4) You will like the head light feature, once you turn it on to use, it lights up the work area spot easily for clearer view of what you are doing. I especially like this feature 5) No more old fashion allen wrench key needed to loosen and tighten to hold the various blades like my older corded tool. This uses a clamp type holder that eliminates needed an allen wrench key. It was always a pain to keep the key handy. Now, nothing to worry about losing the allen wrench key. 6) It was too bad it would not take the Dremel blades unless it has the universal holes on it. the older dremel blades with the original holes will not fit, so note that. Most newer blades these days have the universal holes to fit many different manufacturer of blade tips these days. 7) There is speed selector dial that runs from 1 to 6 settings depending on how you were using what blade types. I found working with settings 1 to 4 was fine for what I was doing. I tried it on an outside wooden window frame on 2 setting and it was fine. 8) It comes with a straight flush cut blade, a drywall wood cutting blade, and a sander velcro head with one sanding triangular sheet. So all you have to add is your battery and your ready to go. 9) This is a tool only with all these included blade tips, but no hard plastic box. I wonder if they sell that separately. But that's just a minor inconvenience and no reflection on the quality that is the Ridgid brand. 10) Nice rubberized grip area and heavy duty feel to it. It doesn't feel cheap and the quality of the design and material used tells its made to last and take the abuse of being in your tool bag too. Overall with all the above, it feels great tool with all the features that makes it a strong reach for tool these days of cordless brushless motor power tool.

                  Ridgid makes great tools and this is no exception. It is light weight and comes with three tips. The variable speed dial makes it easy to adjust the speed and the quick release for the tips is super easy and quick. The three tips are a sanding tip, an cutting blade, and a plunch cutting blade. There are more blades you can buy to add functionallity to the tool. The pictures in the manual are not real clear about how to attach the blades so be aware. You lift the handle on the back all the way, then lift the metal slide on the front and then you can attach or release the blade. If you are not sure how to do it, there are a couple of videos on the Internet. Also, be aware that this is the tool only. That means, NO BATTERY. I just used the battery from my impact drill which is a fairly universal batter across Ridgid tools. As I said before, it is really light so I did some sanding with it and it was easy to use and after sanding quite a bit my hands did not feel tired or buzz like my old (other brand) sander. One more feature with all Ridgid tools is that you can register the tool and get a lifetime warrenty. That is very impressive in this day and age. I would recommend this tool.
